The markings on this bird looks like a female or a juvenile.
Ruff was my initial id but doubted myself so went for knot! It was the leg colour that threw me as I thought ruff had darker legs.
Thank you for your help
Something about the jizz suggests it is quite a large bird and so a male.
Knot is really quite a dumpy wader with short legs...if you saw the two together you would immediately see the difference. A Knot's feet would be about where this bird's 'knees' are! Knot also have a shorter neck.
